At the end of the day, you must remove your makeup to allow your skin to breathe and to prevent the build-up of dirt, bacteria, and dead/dry skin. To remove false eyelashes, gently peel off your lash from one corner to the other. If it's discomforting to peel off the eyelashes, dip a Q-Tip in some makeup remover and run it over the lash line to loosen up the lash glue. To remove your makeup, use makeup remover (wipes, liquid, oil, balm, etc.). Once you've removed all of your makeup, go over your face again with more remover because chances are there's still more makeup left on your skin that you may not be able to see.
After removing your makeup, cleanse your face with a face cleanser (not soap) of your choice. Then, cleanse again to ensure your face is squeaky clean!
Optional: Exfoliate your skin with an exfoliant of your choice to remove dead/dry skin.
Pat your skin dry with a disposable paper towel to prevent bacteria from a regular towel from getting into your open pores.
Optional: Apply a toner to your skin using a cotton round to eliminate any excess oil or stubborn dirt/makeup left behind from washing your face and to prepare your skin for a moisturizer.
Once the toner has dried, moisturize your skin with a face moisturizer of your choice (not body lotion - body lotions are too thick for the face).
OMBRE POWDER BROWS
After your first treatment, there are a few things you need to do in order to maintain and increase your results:
Drink lots of water – Drinking water is not only beneficial for your body in general, but it’s also imperative for fast, optimal results. A lot of lymphatic drainage happens during and after your treatments. Lymphatic fluids are drained through your pee and your sweat. It is recommended that you drink 1.5 - 2.5 Litres of water A DAY. The easiest way to do this is to purchase a couple of 1 - 1.5L water bottles (Dollarama has 1.5L water bottles for 50 cents each).
Clean Eating – It's important to maintain healthy eating habits during and after your treatments. Not only will it improve your health, but it will also improve and maintain your results. You don't have to eat salads 24/7, but just be cautious of what you are putting into your body - lots of fruits and veggies. Avoid foods that are fried, high in sugar, high in sodium, and high in fat.
Exercise – working out is also key to seeing the best results during and after your treatments. The more you exercise, the more results you will see and the more beneficial your treatments will be. I’m not asking you to be in the gym every day doing a 2-hour workout; all I’m asking for is at least 15 minutes of heart-racing cardio A DAY (jogging/running/speed-walking on a treadmill or outside, elliptical, skipping, stair climbing, rowing, swimming, etc.)
